MLA Working Group on "Nonhuman Forms"  Humanistic inquiry of late is obsessed with the nonhuman. Uncoupling the humanities from the human, the range of approaches operating under the umbrella of “the nonhuman turn” have reconfigured the standard divide between subject and object, agency and volition, person and thing.

Transformations of Gertrude Stein (MLA 2018)

Madison Priest
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 15, 2017

This panel takes its title from Marianne DeKoven’s introduction to Modern Fiction Studies’ special issue on Gertrude Stein, and seeks new perspectives on Stein’s work, life and celebrity. “Cases no longer need to be made for Stein’s importance,” DeKoven observed in 1996; “she has become a figure of limitless capaciousness and magnitude, a site of potentiality.” Two decades later, how is Stein’s critical legacy being transformed? How does her work speak to trends in different fields; and how does new work in those fields in turn reinvigorate readings of Stein?

 

Please send 300 word abstracts and a brief bio to Madison Priest, mpriest@gradcenter.cuny.edu.

Irish Literature Panel: SCMLA

Anna Stone/South Central Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, March 31, 2017

In her poem, "The Lost Land," Eavan Boland declares that  

 . . . memory itself  
has become an emigrant  
wandering in a place  
where love dissembles itself as landscape.  

From Jonathan Swift's Gulliver's Travels to Colm Toibin's Brooklyn, Irish literature has always been especially concerned with travel, migration, and the fluidity of national boundaries. This panel seeks papers that examine migration, immigration, diaspora, and displacement in Irish texts.
